Music and making are at the core of Dan's work. Motivated by his ongoing career in the music and audiovisual industries, Dan ventured into the world of glass after moving from his hometown of Melbourne to London in 2000. Reoccurring themes in the work emanate from a fascination with prehistoric ingenuity, and a passion to illustrate the influence and history of materials in our lives.
Dan has been awarded various accolades for his glasswork and participated in exhibitions, residencies and workshops in Europe, UK, USA and Australia. After completing a Master of Arts at Royal College of Art in London 2014, along with many other projects he has been Artist in Residence at Wolverhampton University (UK) and The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (Bornholm) where he continued to develop processes that merge mouldmaking, kilnforming, and coldworking techniques in the hotshop. He now runs the Glass Studios at Monash University in Melbourne.
